Energy Management

We offer energy management system certification under ISO 50001. This is an effective tool for ensuring that your energy consumption is cost-effective and for focusing on reducing your energy expenses.

An effective energy management system (EnMS) helps your organisation to establish processes for improving its energy performance. Implementing ISO 50001 can be an effective tool for reducing your energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and other environmental impacts.

A certified energy management system enables you to prove to others that your energy consumption is under control and demonstrates your commitment to continuously improving your energy performance.

Put energy consumption in the spotlight with a certified energy management system

Due to the high energy prices in Denmark, most companies and organisations stand to benefit from focusing on their energy costs and continuously optimising their energy consumption.

One of the advantages of a certified energy management system is an ongoing focus on your company’s energy consumption. Annual oversight visits from FORCE Certification keep the process of reducing energy expenses in motion.

Aside from the benefits in terms of financial savings, risk reduction, and compliance with energy requirements, an energy management system helps to demonstrate your company’s energy consciousness to the rest of the world.

Are you subject to the mandatory energy audit requirement?

All large companies in the EU must undergo mandatory energy audits every four years. This includes all large Danish businesses. This requirement is a product of the European
Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and is specified in the executive order on mandatory energy audits at large businesses.

That said, a management system certified in accordance with ISO 50001, or ISO 14001 including energy reviews (cf. exec. order 624/2023 on mandatory energy audits at large businesses), can supersede the mandatory energy audit requirement. It can also be a helpful tool for achieving greater energy efficiency at your company.

Energy efficiency programme certification for excess heat (EFO)

This programme is designed for companies interested in obtaining a tax exemption for taxable excess heat supply, which the company provides to a district heating company or other company.

Exec. order 2656/2021 on an energy efficiency programme for excess heat (EFO) allows companies to apply for an energy management certification at the same time as they apply for the energy efficiency programme for external excess heat.

We offer combined certification under ISO 50001 and the supplementary requirements of exec. order 2656/2021 and the applicable requirements specification on the energy efficiency programme for excess heat (EFO).

How does energy management system certification work?

The certification process typically begins with an introductory meeting at the company’s premises. During the meeting, you and our auditor will work together to plan out the steps for certification.

From that point, the process typically looks like this:

  • Phase 1: Auditors from FORCE Certification assess whether the company’s energy management system adheres to the DS/EN ISO 50001 standard. Any problem areas identified must be addressed before certification can continue.
  • Phase 2: Auditors from FORCE Certification conduct interviews and observe key areas of the company to confirm that the energy management system has been implemented and is adhered to in everyday operations. Any deviations identified must be addressed before a certificate can be issued.

Our auditors endeavour to provide value to companies through the certification process, drawing your attention to areas for improvement and critical areas where you can take action.

Interplay between management systems

If your company has already implemented management systems, such as an ISO 9001 quality management system, an ISO 14001 environmental management system, or an ISO 45001 occupational health and safety management system, combining these systems with an energy management system is a natural choice.
